The Carol Jenkins Barnett Pavilion for Women and Children is uniquely designed to provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care for women and children. The eight-story pavilion features Polk County’s only 30-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), providing critical care for infants with acute prematurity.
The design achieved a 12% reduction in energy compared to the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 baseline. Energy-efficient features include premium efficiency duplex chillers, heat recovery chillers, LED lighting, sensor-operated plumbing fixtures and daylight harvesting.
The two-story central energy plant houses two 1,500-ton centrifugal, water-cooled chillers and three 1000-ton cooling towers. Four parallel 1,500-kw generators provide backup power to keep the pavilion fully operational during a power outage.
The building has the flexibility to convert all patient rooms (approximately 50 rooms) on the 8th floor into negative pressure, 100% exhaust rooms.
